Blackberry Wood | 5:30 & 6:45
Blackberry wood will whisk you away to a wild and colourful footstompin' old style country-gypsy-circus barn dance! Imagine something sorta like a private party in the back of a traveling carnival. A solid reputation for high-energy and unbelievably exciting dance floor shakin' shows goes with Blackberry Wood every stage they're on. There is amazing story telling and mesmerizing ballads as well to ease you into Blackberry Wood's magical musical land. When you spot them they'll be coming down the road looking like an old travelling minstrel show, all dressed up to make ya smile inside!! Website.

Teapot in the Tuba 
is the miniature circus-jazz orchestra of Mike Allen on clarinet and Katheryn Petersen on accordion. Their bulging repertoire suitcase contains tunes for rarified purposes such as calming savage beasts, stoking the fires of ceremony, or providing a high-diving diva with a flash of improvisational wonderment. Overflowing with surprises at every phrase, lick and cadence, they create worlds out of sound. Website.
